2nd test position (Black to play) bm Nfd5!!

I don't like to open another thread and bombard the front page with test positions. So I will just append this one here, more difficult I guess since this one requires double R sac for a mating attack on Kg1 using the light squares.

Re: Komodo vs GM Smerdon knight odds match

Sounds exciting. Thanks for the heads up.
Ballpark score could be 3.5 - 2.5 win for Komodo.
All draws plus 1 win for the engine.

why dont you play vs Lco or other NN engines?
I'm sure he did but can't publish the
